Ground Control to Major Vuitton
When I pulled into the parking lot this morning there was a gigantic delivery truck parked alongside the store. Apparently the driver had arrived in the middle of the night and slept in a small bed located inside the cab. The space-aged Ardbeg vial had finally made its way to K&L and this was the man chosen to guard that whisky—with his life, if need be (not really).
You might have thought a major rock band was getting ready to play a show in our back alley. It looked like a group of roadies unloading the instruments of a major artist.
In the end, however, it's just a gigantic, interstellar display that will sit near our front counter for the next few weeks. I've already received a ton of emails about it.
"Do we get to taste it?" No.
"Is there a tasting involved with the display?" No.
"Are you going to do some kind of tasting party to celebrate the display?" No.
"Are you saying all we get to do is come in and look at the whisky; not taste it or at least smell it?" Yes.
You are all welcome to come and look at the Ardbeg space-aged whisky whenever you want. I still have no idea what the end result is going to look like, but considering how long it's taking them to assemble the display, I'm guessing it's going to be intricate. It's definitely making a rather slow sales day somewhat entertaining. I'll keep you all posted.
